Opening for 2018 Woodcrest Couples League

A slot for playing in the 2018 Woodcrest Couples League, playing on Mondays starting on April 30th has opened up. Further information about the league is listed below.

Woodcrest Couples League will play Mondays, starting on April 30th and running for 15 weeks finishing on August 13th with the Yearend Sadie Hawkins Tournament on August 20th. There will be no play on the May 28th Memorial Day Holiday. Playing times will be between 4 and 6 PM. Cost is $80 per couple cash, for members, on first day payable to our designated money collector, usually Steve Fairbank. This year there will NOT be separate early and late divisions. This way you will probably be able to play at least once against all participating teams.
Non-Members will owe an additional $12 per person per week, $180 per person or $360 per couple for the season, also payable in full for the entire season on the first night. Carts are always available weekly at $12 per couple.
 
We ask that each team that wishes to participate could provide us with participant names, current contact information including an email address and text-capable cell phone number for each participant, so we might create a roster with contact information and schedule the season’s matches

CNY PGA hall of Fame Induction 2018

Hi All.

It is with great honor and pride that Joe and I make this special announcement to you our Woodcrest Family.

Over the winter, Richard received great news that he was nominated for possible induction into the CNY PGA Section Hall of Fame. Being 1 of only 41 sections in the country this was indeed a big deal! After completing the extensive paperwork and submission, we are so proud to let you know he was a unanimous selection from the HOF committee and the voting members all of whom are in this prestigious Hall already. There have only been 35 inductees in the nearly 95-year history of this section.

As you know Richard has been the only Head Professional in our history and for the last 18 years also general Manager here at Woodcrest G.C. His passion and drive to make our facility what it is today is his daily driving force. What you might not know is that along the way, the CNYPGA has honored him with 9 section awards including being named Professional of the Year on 2 occasions. He has taken lead roles in Jr league golf, The CNYPGA greens card incentive program, and has been an active participant in section governance and leadership for nearly 20 years. He is now serving as the section President which is a part-time job in itself and one he takes very seriously.

We know Richard is our Pro of the year every year but this is truly the highest honor he can receive and is so deserving of it. Please make sure to let him know how proud and happy we are for him.

Of course with such distinction must come a party!! The section special awards evening will be the first Thursday in December 12-06-18 at Drumlins Golf Club where they will be officially inducting him. This is your first save the date reminder!!!  We all remember the turn out in 2015 for his Professional of the Year celebration so let’s start making plans to shatter that record!!

From the luckiest two people on the face of the earth.

Denise and Joe Vanderwerken
